72 - CAPE GAZETYE, Friday, July 14 - July 20, 2000 ARTS & ENTERTAINMENT Steppin' Out S.O.S. band celebrates CD release at Mulligan's .What we give is a team effort." Adams, Walker, and Arsenault have played as a group for the past four years; Mason and the S.O.S. name came three years later. Personal experiences give the band its musical inspiration, as evidenced through one track, "Alone." Dedicated to friend Sean Ellis, who lost his life in a car accident, the song, according to Adams, is a "force from the past that keeps us going with love always." S.O.S.-- short for "South of Sanity"--- may be a young band in name but the musicians have matured through years of back- yard parties and practices where they played for loyal supporters, better known as "the stiffs." The stiffs and plenty of others showed up for Monday's release party, a gathering that Adams and Mason called "a beautiful thing, all the stiffs in their true colors." By Tom Frederick Local music fans turned out and geared up in support of the home grown band S.OS. on Monday night at Mulligan's for their debut CD release, "Dark Green Guy". Having played together for a year under theS.O.S, name, the foursome consists of Jim Adams on lead vocals and bass guitar, Lloyd Mason on lead guitar and vocals, Nate Walker on rhythm guitar and vocals, and J.R. Arsenault on drums and vocals. The band describes its musical style as "Hard Rock with a twist featuring original songs that are packed with raw energy and emo- tion." Adams credits a feeling of brotherhood for the deep emotions which the band features in its lyrics and sound. "We have known each other and played together for years, and that has had a good effect on our music. Dan Cook photo Lead singer/bassist Jimmy Adams plays to a packed house at Mulligan's in Rehoboth on July 10. "Dark Green Guy" is a collec- tion of original tracks written by all members of the group. To cel- ebrate the release of the album, superfan Jay Wingate acted as a mascot for the group by arriving as a walking advertisement of its title. With every body part col- ored green, Wingate hovered on stage, keeping the fans fired up. S.O.S. feeds off the emotion of the crowd, and the crowd of listeners kept the emotions intense all night long. "Freaking awesome," was Arsenault's reaction to the local gig, while Mason took a more philosophical aproach. "All of life is sound," he said, adding, "This feels like a family," as he looked over the scene from the stage.

Rehoboth Beach Bandstand: Continued on page 75 62nd Rehoboth Art League Membe]'s' Fine Art Show to open The Rehoboth Art League has announced the opening of three exhibitions: the 62nd Members' Fine Art Exhibition; hand-blown glass by Phil Adkins; and oil paintings by Joanne Aisruhe. All three shows will be on exhibit from July 21 through Aug. 27. Over 200 artists participate annually in the members' exhibition located in the League's Corkran and Tubbs Galleries. The featured artist, Anne B. Hurley, works in pastel, brushing the paper with subtle col- ors and shading, soft and quiet, but at the same time strong and inviting. Hurley explores women's roles in society and the beauty and joy that can result from facing the painful issues that often occur in a woman's life. But instead of employing the often used themes of shock and rage, Hurley's work as a nurse and her personal experience led her' to softer images. Philip Gilbert Adkins, displaying in the Ventures Gallery, is a young artiSt, new to his craft, but who is already getting noticed by both his professors and the public. It has been said that only the glass artist is able to steal fire from the earth and make it con- form to his will, creating a piece of art that captures fire. It is that love of fire that shows in Adkins' work. Raised in Sussex County, Adkins has always loved art but first experienced blowing glass only after graduating from Indian River High School. He was accepted into the University of the Arts in Philadelphia, where he is now a junior. Joanne P. Alsruhe will display her oil paintings in the Homestead Gallery. With an incredible eye for detail and color, Alsruhe paints photo-realistic oils of people and local, Rehoboth scenes, including such favorites as Louie's Pizza. Alsruhe was born and raised in Maryland, studied at the Maryland Institute of Art and then pursued her interest in science after school, which led to her current position as surgical Continued on page 74 Anne B. Hurley, who works in pastel, will be the featured artist at the Rehoboth Art League's 62nd Annual Members' Fine Arts Exhibit, which opens Friday, July 21. Above is her work Endo, Ecto and Mezo.
